Beat the Heat. Become Liberty Corner’s Coolest Art Vendors!

 Artstryngs  is transforming its gallery this summer and offering shade and shared spaces to coastal artisans in our summer Art Fair called Summer in the City-Artist Takeover.

We are offering multiple spaces to artists and creatives to rent individually or to share with fellow artists to exhibit and sell their work, teach workshops, host film premiers, and much more!

To add some summer sizzle we will be hosting Themed Week-ends throughout the summer with some exciting events. Spaces are available to rent Saturday-Sunday  throughout the summer starting July 19 to August 25, 2024.

Who are We Looking For?

Exhibitors, workshop instructors, vendors, film makers, designers, sculptors, and more to bring Savannah’s diverse art scene together. An embodiment of summer's essence, featuring a diverse array of artistic mediums and handcrafted articles, such as: jewelry, tapestries, clothing,  photography, fine art, high quality crafts.

When

Starting this July through August at Artstryngs Gallery we are welcome to all forms of media, but for this Art Fair we are keeping it cool by breaking it down week-end by week-end, alternating between week-ends with specific themes and weeks with undefined themes. If you are a creator with an undefined niche, we encourage to apply for the undefined week-end.
